Mike Marzelli of the Pine Bluff Commercial asks how does Arkansas-Pine Bluff rebound from it's worst loss since 1983? The Golden Lions will find out on Saturday. Pine Bluff head coach Mo Forte says “Obviously [New Mexico State is] a good football program and they’re the biggest challenge we’ve faced since I’ve been here, but who’s to say that [Southern Illinois] isn’t as good as a mid-level Division I team like they are?”
(Note to Aggie fans: Southern Illinois is the 7th ranked team in Division I-AA)

Andy Katz of ESPN.com had this to say about the Legends Classic (It's an ESPN insider feature so there's no link).
"Once again, the Legends tournaments are set up for four hosts to get to the championship site in Newark at the new Prudential Center (new home for Seton Hall). Let's just say if Texas, New Mexico State, Tennessee and West Virginia don't make it to Newark on Nov. 23-24, then something is askew.
NMSU will host UC Davis and then LeMoyne-Owens on Nov. 14 and 18. Tennessee hosts Arkansas-Monticello and Prairie View A&M on Nov. 14 and 16. Texas is hosting UC Davis and Arkansas-Monticello on Nov. 16 and 18. West Virginia gets Arkansas-Monticello and Prairie-View A&M Nov. 16 and 18. To throw a bone at Davis and PVAM, those schools will also host. LaVerne and UC Santa Cruz will go to Davis on Nov. 11 and 18; PVAM hosts Jarvis Christian on Nov. 20.
But none of those teams has a shot to go to Newark. This is not a traditional tournament. Instead, the championship is set with Texas playing NMSU and Tennessee playing West Virginia on Nov. 23, and then the winners and losers play on Nov. 24. "
